Artisans of a Great House

In this hands on workshop series artisans explore the trades employed by families who lived in the great houses of the Chesapeake, like the Hammond-Harwood House. Second generation silversmith, Henry Hopkins III, has worked on silver for the White House, The Phillips Collection, and Homewood House. In this two hour long program Mr. Hopkins will take you on a tour of the silver collection of Hammond-Harwood House including the conservation methods he used on an 18th century urn and 19th century butter dish, both original to the house.

This Event is Brought to You By Hammond-Harwood House

The Hammond-Harwood House is a museum of 18th century architecture and art standing as a testament to the importance of preservation to the residents of Annapolis, and America. Built in 1774, this National Historic Landmark presents a window into the lives of the people who built the house, lived in it, and ensured that it would be enjoyed by future generations for years to come. Tours of the House highlight its refined design, unique history, and incomparable collection of paintings by Charles Willson Peale and furniture by John Shaw. Open daily noon to 5 p.m, closed on Tuesday.
